‘Be vigilant when driving through Africa: camels are careless when crossing the road and women carrying waterpots are little more watchful’ warn the authors of this fifth edition of Africa Overland. They also give updated information on each country’s political and security situation (Angola, Sierra Leone and Liberia are on the up; since this guide's last edition, security in Western Sudan and Eastern Chad has turned sour); provide an expanded Route Outlines section including information on border crossings; and offer revised recommendations on vehicles including practical coverage on buying a vehicle, maintenance and driving.
